New Jersey Motorsports Park
To Allow Race Fans to Drive
Their Tracks this Weekend
How often have you, as a race fan, sat in the grandstands watching a race and said, “Man I would love to try that.” Well at New Jersey Motorsports Park, located in Millville, New Jersey, you can do just that this weekend.
The World Class facility, which host events by racing organizations such as SCCA, and ARCA throughout the year is opening both of its road courses to the general public this weekend, Saturday March 15th, and Sunday March 16th. Yes that means you can drive your street car, motorcycle, race car, or just about anything with wheels on either of its two courses.
Saturday all the action will take place on Lightning Raceway, a 1.9 mile road course with 10 corner circuits, and some very interesting elevation changes. Sunday it all moves to the Thunderbolt Raceway, a 2.25 mile road course with 14 turns, and a one half mile straightaway.
The track’s F1 Karting experience will also open this weekend. Here you can operate a professional style go kart, which can hit speeds of up to 55mph, on one of the best karting facilities in the country. The track provides the Kart, a race suit, helmet, neck brace, and a classroom safety course for only $35 for your first 15 minute session. Each additional session is $20.
You can even make a weekend of it by renting one of the track’s VIP Suites which can double as a hotel room for as low as $50. These suites have two pull-out double beds that can accommodate up to four people. They also feature a flat screen television, high speed internet, bathroom with a shower, refrigerator, microwave, and a shared balcony overlooking the front straightaway.
New Jersey Motorsports Park also recently announced a land purchase which will allow them to develop their Field of Dreams concept. Field of Dreams will feature four professionally designed, and built, off-road tracks. A smaller track will be used by younger, and inexperienced riders, while the largest will be available to the more experienced on both two, and four wheels.
This seems like the perfect weekend to check out everything this great facility, located in South Jersey has to offer. Take a few laps around the track, drive a go-kart, or just look at what the future holds for what is becoming one of the premier racing facilities in the country. If you are a New Jersey race fan you owe it to yourself to make it out to the New Jersey Motorsports Park.
